Here is my desk... or actually dining table as craft room is demolition area and if tried to put these on it you would not see them and wanted to share them properly.
Two piles of loveliness - first here are the Snoopy stamps inked out from Sarn.. I admired them here on her blog and she very kindly offered to send me some and sent this lovely card as well- see here, better photo of pear card - thank YOU Sarn (Sandra of Stamping with Pleasure) - see Snoopy card here!
The next lot of loveliness is the bundle from Artneko - such an amazing ones from new site. I found saw it on my friend Anne's "Ink~a~Doodle~Do" blog and she won a prize for her effort and soo lovely.. see here.
Then also saw them on Lindsay's blog.
To see their stamps, especially ones on 50% off sale at present L@@K here - and if you mention Lindsay Weirich's blog the Frugal Crafter, here, you can get an extra 10%!
These are the two which I bought and are on my desk today...the ATC set - Gorgeous NINE stamps in all and the Muted Bamboo and Calligraphy banner (how could I resist?? :D) AND Annette gave me a free stamp, PLUS a piece of the lovely Japanese Washi paper, and card/envelope with back ending, plus a cute bag the free stamp came, and a 10% of for next visit.. mm, think there may be one.. ;D
For those of you wondering where I am ie not doing WOYWW recently, I have not been best (eye surgery). I have also found being unwell loosens your resolve not to buy things as have been bit bad.. I cant wait to try out thse newly mounted treasures - thanks Annette, great efficient post all the way down under!!
Artneko have a very good run down on how to mount with foam-see here. I love the way they talk about separating stamp pieces and make it like a jigsaw so you can either use it as a whole or individually easily.. see half way down link above...
Also idea of using glycerine to clean gunk off scissors works a treat.. great tips page. Yes mine are already mounted that is something I am usually good at ...
Oh and if you remember me starting a Stampscapes card a month or so ago with the corner that weren't corners :D, I have posted it and some shots from Finland visit on post below..
Those of you wondering why a desk is on view please join over at the lovely Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground for What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday! I may not get around to you all much this week, sorry!
Thanks so much everyone for popping over for peek and chat.
May God bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz.x
